Sisters Mary Shappee and Gert Shuckhart have been taming horses for most of their lives, beginning as children in 4-H club. While Gert manages Majic Stables' office and rare bookmark collection, Mary's passion for riding keeps her in the saddle, where she teaches private and group lessons that rein in riders as young as 5 years old. A 70'x198' indoor arena allows for nighttime and fair-weather rides, and the 100'x200' outdoor area is dotted with jumps and dressage letters for tricky choreography.
Urban Lawn and Garden founder Willie Collins focuses on leading a healthy lifestyle while maintaining the planet’s natural resources. His company’s philosophy reflects his views by making sustainable lawn and garden care possible for everyone with a fleet of electric-powered vehicles, eco-friendly mowers, and a line of organic composts. Throughout the growing season, lawn specialists summon green grass while rescinding weeds' squatters' rights. In addition to lawn care, the company installs brand-new gardens, perfect for growing fruit, veggies, and flowers. What little extra power Urban Lawn and Garden uses is offset by the business's solar panels, making its daily operations completely self-sustained, and thus exempt from paying the earth’s monthly rent.
